My husband and I were a little hesitant booking this Kayak trip because we have absolutely no kayaking experience, but we decided to be adventurous and go for it. I'm so glad we did!
We went on the Black Canyon 12 mile trip. We were picked up at our hotel in a shuttle van and along the way picked up some others. We then went to Boulder City to load up the Kayaks. From there, we went to the Hoover Dam to start our trip. The entrance is very secured, hence the permit you must get through Desert Adventures (they take care of this). It is a view of the damn you cannot get anywhere else.
We were riding in single kayaks that day. Our tour guide, Dave was awesome! He was knowledgeable, helpful, and had a great attitude. We were informed that the day we were out was going to be windy, which can become tiring while kayaking.
To make a long story short, the hot springs are amazing and we got to see sheep along the way on the rocks. The caves along the river and just the scenery is so peaceful. Our guide has granola bars and water. The provided lunch was great. I had the turkey sandwich, which was pulled turkey, not lunch meat. My husband had ham sandwich, which was a nice chunk of ham. You get carrots, apple, and a choc. chip cookie.
We were definitely sore the next day from all the paddling (the wind definitely makes it harder). If you have soft hands, you may want to bring gloves to prevent blisters on your hands.
